Sometimes I use graph paper and crayons to check the placement of fabrics on the Sampler blocks, especially when the pattern shows more fabrics than I am using or if I am running short of a color.
Sunday, I worked on the September sampler blocks:
Aunt Dinah is shown on the left
Can't Stop Spinnin' is shown on the right (I used the crayons several times to find a placement I liked for this block. I wanted to make sure that it did not have a heavy feeling/appearance)
